It's another day at school and he's just walking out the door 
Got his nap sack on his back and his feet dragging on the floor 
Always late, but when he's questioned he can't think of what to say 
How's the bruises from the teacher he's hoping that they go away 
Even though his mom and dad they both got problems of their own 
Called a ? 22 but he'd still rather be at home 
Cries himself to sleep and prays when he wakes up things might have changed 
But everything's still the same 

(But didn't you say) You always said that I should speak up, mm
But it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all 
Because

I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me 
That's why I'm late for school (but you never listen) 
Instead you always seen to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth) 
I didn't even want to tell you anything encase it made things worse (Just so you know) 
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting me 
Hey Mom and Dad it hurts 

Everyday keeps on repeating like the record on replay 
Slowly getting off the bus with Johnny waiting at the gates 
Like a friend smiling and waiving and called him out his name 
Put his arm around his neck what's up now gimme all your change 
Too afraid to make a scene or plead with him to let him go 
He just takes whatevers coming, feels the pain with every blow 
Tries in vain to make himself ? as soon as he gets home 
But everything's still the same

(But didn't you say) You always said that I should speak up, mm
But it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all 
Because

I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me 
That's why I'm late for school (but you never listen) 
Instead you always seen to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth) 
I didn't even want to tell you anything encase it made things worse (Just so you know) 
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting me 
Hey Mom and Dad it hurts 

You always said that I should speak up, mm
And to never be afraid to come and tell you if I needed to talk (If I needed to talk, Yeah) 
Well I don't know the meaning of love, mm
Cause it seems like all the things you said to me before mean nothing at all 

(Mean nothing at all) 
Because

I keep telling you that Johnny's hitting me 
That's why I'm late for school (but you never listen) 
Instead you always seen to end up blaming me for things I didn't do (For what it's worth) 
I didn't even want to tell you anything encase it made things worse (Just so you know) 
Every time I say that Johnny's hitting me 
Hey Mom and Dad it hurts
Hey Mom and Dad it hurts
Hey Mom and Dad it hurts
